Dangerous gases.

The measurements with the ECR source will be performed with gases like \( SiH_{4} \) or \( PH_{3} \). A special equipment will be set up. This will consist out of

  1. a safety cupboard as a container of the gas bottles (available);
  2. probes to detect spurious gases and an interlock system (available);
  3. a special oven to destroy the gases after use (available).
Some members of the group have experience with treating similarly dangerous gases like \( B_{2}H_{6} \). The necessary precautions will be worked out with the specialists at PSI.
